For Your New Beginning

By Amba Gale

May you step forward into
many new journeys
new islands for exploration and adventure.

May you arrive at each island, intensely curious, open, willing
to discover
what you didn’t know you didn’t know,
an experimenter,
an explorer,
fresh, and ready to pioneer.

May you move
in accord
with your essential nature.

May each of your islands
greet your arrival with invitation, welcome,
and celebration.

May you be open to surprises.

May the ferryman in his sturdy wooden boat
always be there for you,
to take you
to your next crossing,
after you embody the Teaching of that Island.

May you weather the rough crossings,
where the frigid wind howls and the waves grow high
with Faith,
a great sense of not knowing,
of Adventure,
of Beginning,
and a largess of spirit
your coming deaths,
and arrivals
with love.

Let go and love the way the world turns. Be with it. Allow it. Notice it. Even, embrace it. When you rail against it, you become part of the same energy that stopped the flow at the beginning. Be the holder of it. Know that it, too, has a destination to, finally, merge as one with all. Listen deeply to your heart inside and those things you know are anciently true. Trust in your essential wisdom to lead the way. The world is in flux. You will find your way. “All things must pass.” Let them go. May I be…

Dancing in the water, the bright orange sun winks at me through the branches of the pine. The ceiling falling is nothing, being present to such beauty.
